Diego Simeone was a top player in his time, who passed through very important sides as Atlético de Madrid, Lazio or Inter, and as well-formed an incredible career as a head coach. The heirs of Simeone are his three sons, all professional players, who are trying to equalize what his father did one day.
The one who is set to follow his steps is Giuliano Simeone, the little one, who is currently playing for Atlético de Madrid. Gianluca, the one in the middle, plays for Ibiza and didn’t have an important career so far as the one of his father. The other one is Giovanni, playing at Cagliari and with an interesting future.
With 25 years old, the attacker is at an important European side but is close to move to a direct competitor from his father team. After 46 matches played for Genoa, he scored 17 goals and gave five assists. Those number put him in the radar of some important teams and one of those is at Spain.
Sevilla is looking forward to sign Gio Simeone and that could mean that the forward could play against his dad. Giovanni was formed at River Plate and passed through CA Banfield, Genoa CFC, Fiorentina and finally Cagliari. With a contract remaining until June 2024 he has a reported value of $15 million according to specialized website Transfermarkt.
